This is a suggestion for people who have difficulty falling asleep at night. As an alternative to counting sheep or taking sleeping pills the author of the article quoted below recommends ten plants which can aid sleep if placed in the bedroom. I came across this information on the Garden Lovers Club website.
Do you have difficulties falling to sleep at night? Insomnia that keeps you awake for hours at a time is not fun. Some nights you might toss and turn endlessly, and when you wake up, you feel even more tired than you did when you went to sleep.
I used to have insomnia, but after I brought a few plants into my bedroom, I began to feel a lot better. In this article, I will introduce you to some of the plants that can help you fall asleep as well as tell you a little bit about how they can help you.
1. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is known most for its ability to heal cuts and burns, but it is also a plant that is useful for improving the quality to the air. After the sun sets at night, this plant starts releasing oxygen into the air. Sleeping in a room with more oxygen will help you drift off much quicker.
It is a plant that does not need a lot of care. It can grow in the dark, go without water, and basically be ignored. In addition, it also reproduces rather quickly.
This is a lovely smelling plant that is known for its ability to bring calm and relaxation to your body. The scent lowers your anxiety, which means that you will be able to sleep better with the plant in your bedroom.
Since this plant is able to reduce your stress levels, you should be able to sleep through the night with much less tossing and turning, which means that you will be more alert during the day.
Lavender is another flower that has a powerful scent. It originates in the hillsides of France. Lavender is said to slow your heart rate and lower your stress and anxiety, which can help you fall to sleep more easily and reduce the amount of time that your body requires to wake up.
